With increasing urbanization we're faced with an urgent crisis, the air in our cities is becoming increasingly toxic, causing upwards of 4.5 million deaths each year. Cellul-air joins the fight for clean air in a new, visual way, powered by microbes. Using the principles of bioremediation, our bacteria-filled modules are designed to take in urban air and breathe out clean, purified air. Bioremediation is a natural process in which microbes absorb and transform noxious pollutants. Each chosen microbial species is able to process a specific pollutant, enabling Cellul-air clusters to specialise to the locations they’re placed in.
